    I want to know the story behind the blue gloves! They’re quite dramatic and memorable. What’s up with ’em?

  2. M-on-a-bike says:

    I see the “Hands Up for Highline Schools” poster. How did they integrate the gloves?

  3. Chuck says:

    It was a great event. Thanks, Michael, for taking all of the photos. The gloves are an illustration of all of the facets of the Foundation’s support for the schools.

  4. Ashley F--HSF Staff says:

    Thanks for your interest in the gloves! They were created as a giveaway for 2012 Cove to Clover race registrants–and as a branding opportunity for the Foundation who’s logo includes two blue hands. Areas the Highline Schools Foundation funds are listed on each finger (which you can’t see in the photos!) They are: Arts, Athletics, Scholarships, Academics, and Community. We thought they would be a nice giveaway at the Gold Star Awards breakfast, too–since our theme these year was “Hands Up for Highline!”
    It was a great event!
